Dark cold brew coffee meets bittersweet smoky rhubarb in the refreshing Brhubarb (“Brew-barb”) Swizzle. A bright botanical rhubarb gin adds appealing complexity, with lemon, a touch of honey and almond syrup balancing the deep roasted coffee.
The inspiration for this cocktail did not start with the name. The name came afterwards when I realized it was a fun play on words that magically made sense with the ingredients! Instead, I was simply inspired to work with flavors I thought would be unique and maybe a bit unexpected. I believe the outcome is a refreshing cocktail anyone would enjoy. You may just find it hard to only have one. Cheers!
Combine the gin, Mr. Black, amaro, lemon juice, honey syrup and orgeat in a large tin.
Add a small amount of crushed or pebble ice to the ingredients and whip shake (about 8 seconds).
Open pour into a chilled highball glass, and top off with more crushed/pebble ice.
Grate a coffee bean over top, and garnish with a thin lemon wheel.
Enjoy, then repeat steps 1-4.
(Note: if you choose, feel free to add ingredients to a chilled highball, then add your ice and swizzle it the traditional way.)
